Professor Rajan Jose is currently the Dean of Research (Technology), a member of Senate, and a Senior Professor at the Universiti Malaysia Pahang (UMP). He supervises the Nanostructured Renewable Energy Materials Laboratory in the Universiti Malaysia Pahang (UMP). He has investigated nanostructured perovskite ceramics for microwave and superconducting electronics during doctoral research at the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), Trivandrum, India and has received PhD degree in the year 2002. He has contributed to the science and engineering of diverse range of materials including metals and alloys, luminescent quantum dots for biological and energy applications, glass and glass ceramics for quantum electronics, and electrochemical materials for energy conversion and storage. He was employed as a scientist at the Indira Gandhi Centre for Atomic Research (India), AIST (Japan), Toyota Technological Institute (Japan), and the National University of Singapore (Singapore) before joining UMP. He has published 175 papers in Web of Science (Thomson Reuters) indexed journals which are cited nearly 8100 times with an h-index of 49. He holds over 21 patents nationally and internationally. His current research interests include nanostructured materials and renewable energy devices; most of his research is on the structure – property relationship in materials for a desired device functionality.
